How we can help
Assign the right people to the right roles
Door supervisory, CCTV operation, close protection, patrols, counterterrorism, emergency response, risk assessment – there’s a long list of security demands in the modern world, and our team can support you with all of them. Whatever your requirements, we have highly-trained, fully-certified personnel ready to assist.
See how we’re pioneering new qualifications for UK security guards, to elevate security standards in retail and give clients the confidence that they’re in a safe pair of hands.
Protect every person, asset and property
Our security colleagues work in hundreds of different environments across the UK, from office buildings and retail parks to data centres, nuclear sites and listed buildings. With bespoke, site-specific training, your team will be ready to protect your people and assets. They bear all the nuances of your requirements in mind, whether that’s patrolling the perimeter or monitoring physical environments, such as the ambient temperature of a data centre.
See how our security teams adapted their approach to support the varied needs of Lloyd’s of London – including protecting its iconic headquarters from urban explorers.
Support your colleagues with cutting-edge tech
Monitor your sites 24/7, proactively manage risk and streamline reporting with a technology-led approach to security. With Mitie, you can take advantage of the full spectrum of security technology, from mobile CCTV towers and door alarms to our leading intelligence software. You can automate deployment to ensure guards are exactly where they’re needed, use AI to predict your security requirements, and keep track of your team’s safety at all times.
See how our technology supports over 2,500 security personnel at this leading UK supermarket, simplifying incident management and providing deep insight into its risk profile and ideal security strategy.
Manage risk in a flexible way
Many sites don’t require a 24/7 physical security presence – but having guards ready to patrol as a deterrent or respond to alarms is a powerful resource. Following a risk-based deployment approach, our mobile patrol teams give you optimum coverage at multiple sites without needing to be stationed anywhere full-time. So if an alarm triggers at any of your locations in the middle of the night, you know our mobile response team will be on the way to check, secure and report back findings along with any further recommendations.
See how our mobile security patrol teams provide highly-effective, cost-efficient security for vacant sites, crime hotspots and locations with high-value items.
Prepare for emergency situations
Your strategy needs to account for risks above and beyond basic security guarding – especially if your people are operating within critical environments. Our emergency response services provide highly-trained teams that can work alongside your people to handle fires, accidents and medical emergencies, rescue from height and confined spaces, environmental incidents, and more.
See how our emergency response services’ prevention, preparedness and response ethos is helping organisations across the UK assess and manage specialist risks.
Build a complete security strategy
People are a core component of an effective security strategy – but they can offer a whole new level of value when they’re backed by intelligence, analysis and other core security and protection services. We act as a single point of contact, offering fully-integrated services as a simpler, more efficient way to manage all your requirements, including security, health and safety, fire prevention and response and lone worker monitoring.
